Festival celebrating Indigenous music and culture will coincide with Jets playoff game on Sunday
The Winnipeg Jets game against the Vegas Golden Knights isn’t the only event that will draw thousands to Winnipeg’s downtown this weekend.
The Manito Ahbee Festival, which celebrates Indigenous arts, culture and music, gets underway in Winnipeg on Wednesday and is expected to bring 10,000 people to Winnipeg’s downtown this weekend, according to organizers.
That’s on top of the thousands expected for Sunday afternoon’s Jets game against the Golden Knights.
“The more the merrier downtown, right? Winnipeg is also the hub of everything celebratory,” said Manito Ahbee executive director Lisa Meeches.
